Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I can't edit or comment now. I guess it's because I changed my computer.
How can I get back the control again?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you have links to the questions then flag one of them (assuming they're all linked to the same account) and ask a moderator to merge that account with your registered one.

Or email ""

Thanks. I can find the question by tag. But how can I talk to a moderator (or anyone)? It seems there's no messaging system in these sites. – phoenies Apr 23 '10 at 2:28
@phoenies - flag one of the questions for moderator attention. That's the one link that exists on all posts regardless of how much or how little reputation you have. – ChrisF Apr 23 '10 at 13:44

Just for the archives: given that accounts are now associated automatically, I guess it's no longer an issue for those who're smart enough to use the same OpenID to log in.

Or, even when not registered, there's an option to get the cookie back using the account recovery, through the Forgot your login information? link.

You need to login with the same account as you did before changing computer.

I didn't login with any account before changing computer. I wasn't registered. – phoenies Apr 22 '10 at 11:33
@phoenies - associate your Stack Overflow and meta account to regain ownership of this question. It's the rightmost tab on your profile page. – ChrisF Apr 22 '10 at 11:56
